Cowbells on the first song?

Ok I'll forgive them if they use it wisely. Hmmm, not sure if they have. Nooo - there it is again!

The opener reminds me of Danger Zone, but the real sound is a LA rock, cowboy boots, fast cars, whiskey. I guess think Queens of the Stoneage, or early Led Zep.

It's got some really cool things going on. I especially like the unassuming guitar lines, and the midrange attack sounds.

For fans of American swagger rock.
